Subject: IMO, It's Kind of a Snoozer...
Even as it was happening, it was obvious that this was a glorious and very special time for the band.
That being said, this show was an oddity.
The night before and the night to come were wonderful, but THIS show...
It was so oddly boring.
Sure, the set list looks decent, but I swear to you. whatever "magic" the band had managed to conjure up was taking a break during this night.
Apparently, the Spring '90 tour has been chosen to be the "magic time" for The Dead - and in many cases it was...
But, this show was not among them.
There's PLENTY of shows from 1990 where that "OMG experience" exists, but this show just isn't one of them.
Subject: This is the best source
As for the show, it's just a shame they have broken up these three nights on Dozin' at the Knick, and they only just now released the last of the shows on the Spring 1990 box. While I always enjoy a good audience recording, I would much rather have the crisp SBDs available for this Knick run.
AUDs do offer something more though. For example, MIDI was still semi-new to the band's sound at this point, and when Jerry kicks on a saxophone MIDI during the beginning of "Wang Dang Doodle," you hear a short burst of cheers and energy from the crowd, letting the boys know that they approve of their new, space-shuttle-age sounds. It took me a little while to warm up to the MIDI, but now that I have immersed myself in 1990-1995 shows ('90 and '93 being my favorite years), I have really grown to love it. Jerry was a great fucking oboe player.
Enjoy the show (~):-}
Oh, and check out Brent singing "Good Time Blues" -- Go Brent, go!
